Hi everyone, I am Pastor Hwajung Jang.
I’m going to talk about what I experienced when I met Peter Daley when he visited Wolmyeongdong during the 2006 summer retreat. Even though it was 10 years, my memory of Peter is very clear because of all the shocking lies I saw later on his website.
I visited Wolmyeongdong to attend the summer retreat. It was the retreat for the military members’ department in Providence, and since the department was not that big, there weren’t many people there. So I sat in front of the lawn, and then I saw a westerner / foreigner – Peter.
